Welcome to the Rotary Club of Preston

Julie Morris  President 2017 -2018
 
Hello there,
 
Preston Rotary is a great friendly club for people to wish to make a difference in their local community and abroad. We are an active service club with diverse ages, genders, vocations and nationalities which provides great networking opportunities. We meet over lunch weekly, with a very broad range of interesting speakers. Preston Rotary in particular gives students a go, we support them financially, as well as with awards and speaking opportunities. Pavilion school in Preston is just one example, a school for adolescents who have been disengaged or excluded from mainstream education.

Over many years the club has supported three organizations in particular
 
  1.  Children First Foundation - who bring chronically ill children from underdeveloped countries, to Melbourne, often for life saving surgery. 
  2. Life Education - a community based independent organization that has a mobile van to educate school students in preventative drug and health education. 
  3. Next Step - offers long term intensive therapy for those who have suffered spinal cord injuries. 
 
In the last 18 months Preston Rotary have distributed over 10,000 Personal Care Packs through our Rotary District (that goes up to Holbrook NSW),in partnership with the Lions Club of Williamstown and Pinchapoo organization. Truly the list goes on… but not for this page now!
 
I often say to people … what doesn’t Rotary do on a world scale? …it’s a fabulous international humanitarian service organization!  Among other things, we in Preston, contribute to eradicate Polio in the world, help with Shelter boxes and Aqua boxes in areas where disasters have occurred.

 Warm wishes
